Picture
You've spent the last 13+ years leading up to this one life moment - and it has come and gone in the blink of an eye!  A lot of students prepare for their post-secondary life (adult life!) early on in their high school career.  Yet there are many more that do not have that pivotal "What do I do now?" moment until after the graduation euphoria waxes and wanes.  This portion of the Counseling Corner is designed to get you and your parents thinking about what comes after you've finished traversing the halls of J-High.

Career Assessment

Having trouble figuring out which career you'd like?  It can sometimes be overwhelming to try and answer the question we've asked since kindergarten: "What do I want to be when I grow up?"  

Fortunately, there are many career assessment options available to you to help figure out what you're good at, what you like, and what you might be interested in!  Check out any of the resources below or talk your school counselor about career exploration!

Job  Resources

You know what career you want and what program or avenue you need to take to access it.  Now comes the final step: Job placement!  Some resources (such as James Rumsey) heavily assist in the job placement process.  Colleges often have recruitment days for students to connect with potential employers.  

But what if you don't have access to or missed out on those opportunities?  The resources below can help you get a feel for what's open and how to get started on that brand new career!
